Giving advice on how to stay in shape, the two-time winner of 'Dancing with the Stars' reminds others, 'If you really care about your body, then your mind starts to work better.'
Cheryl Burke has an advice for those who want to stay in shape during the holiday season. Acknowledging that there are many challenges to keep fit over the holidays, the two-time winner of "Dancing with the Stars" reminded others that "it's all about doing something fun, whether it's an outdoor activity or yoga."
Met by PEOPLE at a New York City event for Macy's activewear line Ideology, the 27-year-old pro-dancer said, "For me, Jazzercize works amazing. If you don't have time, just run on a treadmill. It makes you want to eat better." She added, "If you really care about your body, then your mind starts to work better. So it's important that it all stays balanced."
As for her own obstacles, Cheryl said, "Now that the show has wrapped, I have to be careful not to indulge. It's important for me to keep my cardio up, especially for my body type, or I'll gain weight so fast." She continued to admit, "If I go a week without working out, it makes me feel that I might as well keep indulging."
